. that is what happened to ronald reagan in 1984 debate with walter mondale. it overran the persona of ronald reagan. next debate he was much more relaxed. roger ails did a great job preparing him and did much better job. same thing with governor romney. he has to know how to answer the questions but he has to be relaxed and rely on himself. one of the things i tell candidates it's very important that they have the good political judgment to make decisions and think on their feet rather than rely on script. >> give me one thing that you think we ought to look for out of mitt romney and one thing out of obama in this debate coming up on wednesday. >>> i think one of the -- apart from the economy, i do think one thing we should be looking for is to see if the president is willing to talk about his record on the economy and defend it. the american people ought to be making a judgment whether or not the president can defend that record. he ought to be looking for governor romney how well he press the case against the president. it's been his failure to lead on the economy that has led us into the
-- sean, you and i know this, the president walked into a mess. >> sean: so did ronald reagan. ronald reagan at this point in his presidency, 8% growth. >> we're not debating ronald reagan. we're debating obama. >> sean: reagan had a worse economy than obama inherited. he said he was inheriting it, and he said he'd fix it. he hasn't fixed it. now we see economic growth, we're heading toward a recession. it's getting worse. $6 trillion in debt, fewer americans working. 17 million more on food stamps. you say he's done a good job and you'd give him a "a." you don't believe that. you don't believe that! >> actually i do. let's think of it this way, sean. we know there's been 30 straight months of private sector job growth. we know he created 5 million jobs. >> sean: no, he did not. private sector from this month to this month -- you're skewing the statistics. fewer americans are working than when he took office. a net loss. >> we can debate the numbers here. i believe i'm right. more importantly, let's look where we're headed. let's say we're in the middle of an ocean, you're in a rowboa
to one back in 1980. and as late as october much that year, ronald reagan was trailing jimmy carter in the polls and the strong debate helped him win. and mike reagan is in the next hour. and problems with seats coming loose in flights, american airlines. tom sullivan is a pilot and our aviation expert. he's going to join us to talk about american airlines and rock legends gene simmons, he voted for obama in '08 and he told us he wants to take that vote back. question, is there anything president obama could say tonight that would change gene simmons' mind and make him vote for obama all over again? we will ask him the question. and we want to hear from you of course, e-mail us at varney@foxbusiness.com. there you have it. and all right, it's wednesday morning and i have the seven early movers for you. family dollar posts higher quarterly profits and i see the stores opening everywhere and that stock is up. what's that, 2% up. nearly 3. data storage company, zero text, made less than expected and give a disappointing forecast and plummet down 12%. intermune, and health officials hav
, to paraphrase ronald reagan, the nine more terrifying words are, i'm from the u.n. and i'm here to help. >> here to help. you know, the u.n. in fact, even back in 2005, usa today, says the u.n. is a scandal. i mean, they've had scandal after scandal and go back to the oil for food, with iran, and it's an organization that has corrupt dictators, corrupt countries and make up a decent part of its membership and it'd be even, to paraphrase jonas, it'd be worse than sending it to the totally and corrupt u.n. >> brenda: and we don't have to paraphrase, jonas, we can go right to him. what do you say? >> i actually think some of these ideas are going to become policy. maybe not from the u.n., but there will be a trading tax of some sort to pay for the world's ills through many large exchange. >> a tobin tax. >> and it's not a bad thing necessarily. if it replaces income. i think an income tax is worse, to get rid of the encome tax, that's probably not what will happen, additional tax and probably, i will say just tax the financial people for the world's ills doesn't make sense, some proposals to fix th
country now. it is a miracle that ronald reagan won 49 states without fox news, rush limbaugh, sean hannity, drudge report, with the network's dominant and "the washington post" and "the new york times" ascended. mitt romney is being undone by some conspiracy out of a 7- eleven in falls church? [laughter] >> there was no other reagan. was unique and a political actor unlike any we have seen. putting mitt against him is unfair. he is not a great campaigner. i think he would be a great president, but he is not a great campaigner. evan is right. if the polls are 0.9% in one direction, there probably true. -- 90% in one direction, they are probably true. but you have to apply a formula by who is likely to show up. if you apply the model of the 2008lectorate, you get one result, highly pro-obama. but if you say the electorate will look more like 2004, then the race is even. i think that is the only argument that you could make. t a conirac it is which way you model the electorate, how it breaks down on election day. >> we have a debate coming up, nina. what is your advice to mitt romney?
. -- conservative wine country now. [laughter] it is a miracle that ronald reagan, one of 49 states without fox news, rush limbaugh out, and sean hannity, drudge report, the network's dominant and "the new york times" at "the washington post" ascended ent. poor mitt romney, done by some conspiracy out of a settlement in falls church? [laughter] >> reagan was unique and a political actor unlike any we have seen. putting mitt romney against him is not a fair standard. he is not a great campaigner. i happen to think he would be a good position, but he is not a great campaigner. on the polls, evan is right. if 90% are pointing in one direction, is probably true. but you have to apply a formula when you decide to was going to be likely to show. if you apply the model of the 2008 electorate, you get one result, which is highly pressure obama. but if you say the electorate would look -- and the pro obama. but if you say the electorate looks more like 2004, then the race is even. it is not a conspiracy, it is a question of which way to model the electorate and which way is going to break down on election da
in nation that not just welcomes, but celebrates legal immigrants. americans by choice is what ronald reagan described. our great strength as a nation is that all of us, our ancestors, came from all of real-world seeking freedom and opportunity and we need to remain a nation that celebrates immigrants and secure our border and gets serious about stopping the problem. >> yet that same president coming in 1986 and instituted a program that was effectively, if not literally, amnesty, which has been criticized by members of your party for opening the floodgates. >> i don't think amnesty is the right approach could i don't think that most texans or most americans support it. i think amnesty is unfair to the millions of legal immigrants to wait years and sometimes the kids in line to come here legally. to reward those who broke the law is fundamentally wrong. >> we know the president put into effect prosecutorial discretion, and wait to address the question of children who are undocumented persons in this country. we do not haveomprehensive immigration reform in this country. where should we go? >
. that is a pledge i have made to the people of nebraska. senator nelson has signed that as well. when ronald reagan was president, we had a debt of $1 trillion. today it is $16 trillion. ronald reagan said we can't do it with a quintero anymore. -- with a carrot anymore. it is going to take a stick, and that is the balanced budget amendment. at $16 trillion, we need a big stick. we need to cut spending. we can do that. we can balance this budget. >> thank you. our next question from clean fisher. -- from colleen williams. >> what is the one thing we should be concentrating on to improve education in this country? >> i'm a former school board member of 20 years. i started out in a two-room school house, was elected to that board and then served over 15 years on the valentine school board. i understand the importance of education. it is a priority for me. but it works best at the local level. it works best when you have school board members involved, when you have parents involved, when you have a community involved and when you have educators involved. one of the mistakes i believe that has been mad
and ronald reagan the second term as the productive term, the big achievement so it's hard to know whether the republican party will -- where they will push the blame if that happens, but the question is how they decide to spend the next four years and i think it's very hard to tell but there is some hope in looking back at both clinton and reagan. >> he was also a far right to limit took running the republican party at the time whoever they equivalent was a time and. but in fact he wasn't. life was a little more complicated by the fearful analogy. >> he raised taxes -- >> i think that's why the parties in opposition tend to be less responsible than parties of power. i think you probably agree. >> agree from your point of view i can think of the times when the other party the of irresponsibly in opposition and the question as it seems to me it from the is elected and you have the party that you think would be responsible and is in the position they have to govern and we will see what happens if that genuinely tends to pull the party is more towards the sector whenever someone becomes presi
theme in carter's campaign and blamed by many costing ford the emphasis. ronald reagan repeatedly attacked by president carter for his stance on health care. >> governor reagan, as a matter of fact, began his political career campaigning around this nation against medicare. >> reporter: reagan wins fans and the election by staying cool. >> there you go again. >> reporter: four years later president reagan again uses humor to handle attacks on his age during his debate with walter mondale. >> i want to you know that also i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> reporter: the next election, democratic candidate due can a ki dukakis is asked this question. >> if kity were raped and murdered, would you favor irrevocable death penalty for the killer? >> no, i don't. i think you know that i proposed the death penalty during all of my life. >> reporter: the public sees his answer as cold and dispassionate. that very night his poll numbers dropped. during the 1988 vice presidential debate -- >>
spending cuts and tax increases. ronald reagan agreed to tax increases when it hit 4%. george w. bush did when it was 3% of gdp. but today's republican party is organized around the proposition that no matter the circumstances, there must never be a tax increase of any kind. the simpson-bowles proposal calls for $1 for every $3 of spending cut bus every republican presidential candidate during the primaries including romney pledge thad he or she would not accept $10 of spending cuts if that meant $1 of tax increases. so romney could present a serious economic plan with numbers that add up and then he would face a revolt within his own party. so his solution has been to be utterly vague about how to deal with the actually deficit. when pressed for details, he said, the devil's in the details. he's right. were he to get specific he would be committing ideological blasphemy. instead he talks about freedom and capitalism. the same pattern emerges on immigration. he says he wanted to solve the immigration issue permanently but he can't actually propose anything practical because that would tal
or whether it was george w. bush or ronald reagan or bill clinton? do they approached these debates differently or do the american people view it differently when you have a sitting president? >> i think so, yes. one of the things that happens is the incumbent is at somewhat of a disadvantage being placed on an equal footing as the challenger, as we talked about before. incumbents have typically had a very rough time in the first debate. i am thinking back to jimmy carter in 1980. ronald reagan in 1984. george h. w. bush in '92. all of these guys who had been in the presidency, they got on that debate stage and came face- to-face with the challenger. it is rattling. they all had a very difficult time getting through the first debate. in each case, they had to up their game as the series went forward. >> you say, "the morning after >> you say, "the morning after the debate, will the media the
in the preparation to debate ronald reagan. >> we set up a couple of podiums. how closely do they try to stage everything in the debate. >> everything is negotiated and the whole one ups is how cold is the studio versus how warm and most importantly as i learned in 1984. is lighting. reagan people got the lighting set and mondale walks out . he has huge bagsurn his eyes. >> did they have a chance to check out the lighting. >> they did and they missed it. one of the things that you mention is just how far apart the podiums are. >> you can be further apart. and how do they engage and you are looking in the camera and have the moderator and critecal moments of campaign is how you turn. >> bill clinton used wag the platform. >> how do you advice. not to put your finger. it is a question of emphasis. and al gore did something risky and it back fired. he walked off his podium and invaded governor bush's speech. he was prepared for al gore to approach him. al gore had done that in the prevous primary. how close do they have to be prepared. you have to be comfortable and prepared for everything . so p
as a college cartoonist. i sank my teeth on that ronald reagan. that was like having george did the bush in office, because ronald reagan would say crazy stuff. i kind of miss ronald reagan for different reasons than you guys miss him. [laughter] >> we have a question in the front row. >> i am curious. you said you are sometimes considered too political. what does that mean? >> i was speaking in terms of a daily comic strip. we have the issue where if you have a political comic strip, either people will segregate it in another section or the opinion page. i got a great spot right under doonesbury. i am the second strip. just being a latino and being a minority cartoonist, there are not that many of us. almost anything i would say could be considered too political. people just want me to shut up. >> i do a political comic strip, too. you may consider yourself a minority, but i am a french with iranian cartoonist. -- lithuanian cartoonist. >> it is amazing a french person would challenge him. but i want to talk about your comic strips also. lotit came as a reaction to l to croce. i was liv
talk about all the time. i talked about tip o'neill and ronald reagan of the 1980s. didn't see eye to eye. they got things done. '90s you and bill clinton. a fascinating character. you guys obviously didn't see eye to eye. you got things done. and bill clinton is having a huge impact in this race. rich lowry of course of the national review said if you want to see when this election turned it was in the middle of bill clinton's speech. this guy still -- you said something about georgia ads. what was that? >> i was told last night by randy evans who is the national committeeman from georgia that there are more ads in georgia for obama with clinton in them than there are with obama in them. which makes sense. you know, bill clinton is the best political figure in terms of skill since ronald reagan. >> right. >> that's just a fact. >> right. >> and his ability to communicate, i thought his speech, which i had to watch, i actually didn't watch the obama speech. >> right. >> i watched the clinton speech. i thought it would be more creative, more interesting. and it turned out to be a lo
ready and don't want them overscripted. what happened to ronald reagan in the debate with walter mondale. he had been wounded with information and overran the persona. the next debate he was much more relaxed and roger ailes, the leader of your network did a great job preparing him and he did a much better job. the same rings true with governor romney. he has to know what he needs to do to abe the questions and he has to be relaxed and rely on himself. i tell candidates that it's very important that they have the good political judgment, good political instincts to make good decisions rather than relying on a script. >> quickly, bret, gef me one thing we ought to look for out of mitt romney and out of obama in this debate coming up on wednesday. >> you know, i think apart from the economy, i think that the one thing we should be looking for is to see if the president is willing to talk about his record on the economy and defend it. now, the american people ought to be making a judgment about whether or not the president can defend that record. we ought to be looking for from governor rom
to the people of the state of nebraska. when ronald reagan was president, we had a debt of that time of $1 trillion. today is $16 trillion. ronald reagan said that we cannot do is put a carrot anymore. it will take a stick, and that stick is the balanced budget amendment. i can tell you is 16 trillion dollars, we need a big stick. we can do that. we can cut spending and balance this budget. >> the next question from calling williams -- colleen williams? >> what is the one thing we can do to improve education in this country? >> i have served over 15 years on different school boards. it plans to stand the importance of education. it works best on the local level, works best when you have board members and parents involved, a community in fall, and many have at decatur's involved. when of the mistakes that has been made at that federal level is the passage of the no child left behind act. it started out with good intentions, but if has not accomplished what it should have. it has taken educators at of the classroom, and we need to keep educators in the classroom if they are going to address
to be there and are eager to make their case. bill clinton was like that. ronald reagan was like that. these two are not like that. for them, this is more, please do not let me do anything wrong, than, what can i do right? as was discussed earlier, he needs a dramatic moment to shift the momentum. if he is intimidated by the experience or feeling boxed in, he is less likely to do that. for obama, it is more a question for maintaining his lead. he does not want to do anything right now that reverses the trajectory he is on. i would expect he is a literate -- a little timid as well. >> if you look at past debates, one dealing with policy, the d, the with gerald forwar other is more style, where obama made a joke about his age. how much is policy and how much a style in these debates? >> i think probably my judgment would be a lot of the stylistic -- a lot of it is stylistic. it is the way they come across to the voters. it is not necessarily as much what they are saying as how they are saying it. every once in awhile, it is itchly more of a case of glti avoidance. to do with lot with their handler
.s. television since ronald reagan and jimmy carter squared off in 1980. but does the media have any more love for president obama? listen to this. >> a new survey of likely voters from veteran -- i thought we had a sound bite. a new survey of likely voters from veteran pollster john mclaughlin shows the media favors obama over romney 43 to 15. let me just repeat that. 1,000 likely voters, 43 to 15. that's what people think they favor obama over romney. so is the mainstream media bias going to stand in the way of a romney surgeon the heels of his stellar debate win? let me go to john mclaughlin. i thought we had some tape of you saying that someplace. here your poll says they're all biassed. what does that mean? i mean, people follow this thing. how can't media stand in the way of it? >> that poll that we did for the american conservative union which you can check on conservative.org will actually show that 43 to 15 they're saying they're biassed and trying to help re-elect him verse versus 15% think they're trying to help romney. romney helped himself last night where you think 130 million pe
the way it was by ronald reagan and speaker, democratic speaker tip o'neal. >> according to the congressional budget office, social security will run into financial trouble. by the year 2030 the amount social security pays out will exceed the tax revenue coming in. so, chris, in about 20 years the program will not be able to pay for itself. >> thank you for that, richard. we'll take a quick break, come back and let our panel weigh in on the medicare debate. we'll be right back. let's see if walmart can help you find the same look for less. okay. see? walmart has all these leading eyewear brands and styles. rockstar! really? yeah. oh, wow! oh, black frame looks good on you. yeah? you can get a complete pair starting at just -- $38. really?! and did you know that our glasses come with a free 12-month replacement guarantee? i didn't know walmart had all this. the price is impressive, the quality is too! come to walmart and see for yourself. find quality eyewear brands starting at just $38. only at walmart. what are they fitting, aliens? now we need a little bit more... a lit
worked with those in the congress. we had the grand compromise with ronald reagan and tip o'neill. it did increase incrementally the age of retirement. and the major factor in attempting to try to keep the social security system reliable, that has actually worked for the last quarter of a century. but will we have the courage now to reach across the island talk about those things. it makes it very difficult to have your opponent and his supporters criticize you because you voted to raise the social security age back in 1983. i thought that is what they talked about, the great times of tip o'neill and ronald reagan working together across the aisle. i worked across the aisle. we stabilize the situation appeared and now he criticizes it. how does that it is anywhere closer to solving the problem? one of things -- one of the things that we have to do is make sure that people who are 55 and over are not affected. >> what about his accusation that you want to privatize social security? >> that is untrue. i suggested a portion of what you're particular account to be invested you see fit. here i
that at this point in 1980 ronald reagan was down about ten points in pennsylvania. he went on to take it. and in 1988 george h.w. bush was down at this point in september by about seven. gregg: you know, i mentioned to our viewers a moment ago the coal industry which is very important to pennsylvania. here's a headline from one newspaper in july, and it reads: pennsylvania coal companies announce layoffs. and the executives blame the policies of president obama and his epa. look, is that having an impact at the polls? >> it very well -- it probably will. i mean, you know, the polls are what they are, but there's a lot of people are angry and upset at the obama administration policies and what it's doing to coal. listen, there's a -- the southwest part of the state, a very coal-dependent economy. now, cross-cutting against that is, as you know, the obama campaign has been really forceful in portraying mitt romney as like this rich, you know, out of touch plutocrat -- gregg: right. >> -- private equity guy, so there's cross-pressures on a lot of these guys between, you know, like, anger ov
policy with amy and ronald reagan looked and said there you go again, and it changed it for ronald reagan. >> let's talk about that fight night. a lot of commentators think of because where romney is it's a make-or-break moment for him. i love to hear all the commentators fall over themselves to compliment each other for once on the campaign trail. you had mitt romney saying the president obviously is a very eloquent gifted speaker. david axelrod said i think the invasion of normandy took less preparation than romney is putting into these debates. who is the better debater? >> i think they are both mediocre debaters. president obama didn't win any of those debates, joe biden won them. the harvard and yale debates, will be paul ryan and joe biden. they will be better at it. romney is good in a group setting, not done a lot of one-on-one. john mccain wasn't the best debater either. he doesn't blow anybody away. >> i spoke with nate silver from the "new york times" who has looked at all the polls and how much ground mitt romney has to gain, as much as seven points, a lot to gain in some of t

friends page and see all these articles. he's to work for ronald reagan. is there a way -- are you doing anything to get into the race cycle with obama and romney? host: what do you say? guest: right now i'm excluded from the first debate. the commission is the presidential debate commission and that is private and made up of republicans and democrats with no interest in seeing a third voice on stage. we have filed three lawsuits to get me on stage based on other third-party candidates who have filed lawsuits. there doesn't seem to be much hope. we filed on the antitrust round, something that has not been done before. host: how much do these debates matter and what are you looking for to hearing on wednesday? guest: the debates are tantamount to me having a chance of winning. you can close the lid on winning the election. is winning getting enough votes to cause one of the other two who ends up winning to give more than just lip service to these issues? potentially. i view this as a victory every single day. there are so many people -- i think i speak on behalf of the majority of america
within minutes of ronald reagan's inauguration. in 1992 when an independent counsel announced the indictment questioning president george w. bush's role. he wound up losing that election to president clinton. eight years later, his son faces own october surprise. d been arrestede election day, for drunk driving decades earlier. despite the headlines, mr. bush took the oath of office the following january. joining me now is a great guest. he is the campaign manager for the gephardt for president campaign. and also ed rogers, chairman of the pgr group. he's he is a former deputy assistant to president george h. w. bush and served as senior deputy on the bush-quayle campaign. is it an october surprise? >> it certainly has been given to president obama. that he had said people who killed our ambassador will be brought to justice. he intends to do something about it. there is almost a question if he doesn't have a retaliatory attack against those are some component of those who killed those americans in libya, he has been given a wonderful opportunity to do something for all americ
, ronald reagan speech writer and adviser has long argued that there is no such thing as a bradley effect. the bradley effect is named for mayor tom bradley of los angeles when he ran against george deukmejian did not do as well in the final balloting is he had been doing in the polling. for years pundits have ascribe that to the brad the affected people are free to say they're not going to vote for african-american because they don't want to be up to the prejudice he they're talking anonymously to pollsters. and he has all the data, and i believe him, but i believe that even if the bradley effect was not true in 1982, latest here in 2012. there is a significant number of people, not for reasons related to race, but for reasons related to the nature of the democratic partisanship who are refusing to tell pollsters that they're not going to vote for president obama. there are quite frankly scared of the machine. and if you are a fan of chick-fil-a you know what i'm talking about.
